Smoking and your eyesight

As a nation, we’re well aware of the risks associated with smoking. From respiratory and cardiovascular diseases to cancers and the accelerated ageing of your skin. Less is known, however, about the many ways that smoking is damaging to one of our most precious organs: the eyes. There are the obvious effects, like the discomfort, irritation, and dryness after spending a night in a smoke-filled club. But the way that tobacco smoke – a toxic mix of more than 7,000 chemicals and compounds – enters your blood… Read more

This is why your eyes are amazing

Despite being things we look at probably more times during the day than anything else, eyes get little recognition for how incredible they are. One of the reasons is simply because they work so well.

To shed a little love on our underappreciated peepers, let’s take a look at a few optical facts that will be sure to open your eyes to how amazing they truly are.… Read more

Debunking the most common eye myths

Ideas about how our eyes work have undergone many changes throughout history. In ancient Greece, for example, Plato’s “emission theory” suggested that we emit beams of light from our eyes in order to illuminate and see objects. Another Greek, Empedocles, believed that Aphrodite made the human eye out of the four elements — fire, air, earth, and water.  She then made sight possible by lighting the fire in the eye and allowing it to shine out. In most parts of the world, such… Read more

Eye-make up and eyecare

Today make-up products like mascara, blusher, foundation, lipstick and eyeliner are a daily necessity for many women around the world. And yet, although they’re carefully designed to make you look good, it’s rare they’re designed to be good for your skin and your general health.

But there are also other, sometimes less noticeable, negative effects that can come from daily makeup use. Here we’re going to… Read more

NEW: Life after Lasik

5 Natural Beauty Tips for Vibrant and Healthy Eyes

We have witnessed a ton of health and beauty trends over the past few years, from Korean skincare routines, ‘virtual try-ons’ in store, to unbundling the spa and salon take-homes. And like most years, many of those trends were much stranger than they were beautifying. Smudged lipstick to achieve that ‘just-kissed’ look. Jade rollers, a jade paint-roller type tool, to ‘rejuvenate’ your face and neck. And bleached eyebrows to, well, make you look super creepy, to name just a few. As usual,… Read more

Autumn is the season of colours

Colours are all around us. And should we stop for long enough to notice them, we realise they make our world not just look incredible, but our experiences a whole lot richer. They are, after all, what enable us to become awestruck at such scenes as a sunset, a rainbow lorikeet, a Henry Matisse or Van Gogh painting, and the bloom of the cherry blossoms in spring. But beyond mere pleasure for the senses, in the natural environment, colours have a whole other… Read more

What Can Damage Your Eyes?

Every day, we hear about things that are bad for our health. The latest one is 5G. Because it uses higher frequency waves, it requires more transmitter masts that are positioned closer to the ground. This is triggering the long-debated question about how radio waves affect us, in particular in relation to certain cancers. Although such concerns to our health come and go and are hard to back up with hard evidence, the ones that relate to the health of our eyes… Read more

How to look after your eyes on holiday this summer

Spending a few hours in the sun is one of the best shortcuts to looking and feeling younger and healthier. But without taking the proper precautions, it’ll quickly do the opposite: damaging the body and leading to macular degeneration, sunburn, skin cancer, and perhaps worst of all, wrinkles. This isn’t good news for anyone not wanting to return from their holidays looking older than when they went. Fortunately, however, to protect yourself from the sun you don’t need to rock up to… Read more

Why Summer After Laser Eye Surgery is So Much Better

What comes to mind when you think of summer? The smell of freshly cut grass, the sound of waves crashing, afternoons spent barbecuing with the family or whole evenings outside drinking wine and chatting with friends? When you’re a glasses or contacts wearer, these images of summer are nothing more than idealistic fantasies. The reality is, your best time of the year is more likely consumed by fighting off allergies and eye problems and dealing with all the inconveniences that come with… Read more
